Which Giannini did you get, one from one of the budget series or one from the hand-crafted series?tothebroccolifields wrote: ↑Thu Jun 29, 2017 1:39 amI've owned both a 7-string Giannini, as well as a 7-string guitar bar Bartolex guitars. The bartloex costs more than the Giannini for a reason. The Giannini had a thin nasally sound (both guitars were cedar). From what I've heard Giannini is really hit and miss, so it could be that I got a sub par instrument. I was very happy with the Bartolex. I played in a quartet against guitars that cost 4 to 5 times as much, and the Bartolex did fairly well. They also offer the same guitar in spruce.
